LifeFlight introduces new helicopters

Apr 02, 2021
LifeFlight of Maine introduces two new helicopters.

LifeFlight is planning a virtual celebration event to introduce two new aircraft to the public Thursday, April 15, at 5 p.m. LifeFlight recently purchased the two new helicopters to transport critically ill and injured patients in Maine.

The Augusta 109 SP model aircraft have a greater weight-carrying capacity, more workspace for patient care, and can fly faster than the older aircraft. The new helicopters, tail numbers N901LF and N901XM, are part of a larger project to upgrade and standardize LifeFlight’s frontline fleet of helicopters.

The event will be broadcast live via Facebook from the Bangor hangar and will include:

  • Crew members giving a virtual tour of N901LF,
  • Remarks from LifeFlight of Maine Executive Director Tom Judge, LifeFlight Foundation Executive Director Kate O’Halloran, CDC Director Dr. Nirav Shah and Maine Warden Service Chaplain Kate Braestrup.
  • A testimonial from one of N901LF’s first patients.
  • Live Q&A with the flight crew.
